Fate of the Furious is killing it at the box office right now, so it should come as no surprise to discover that the studio is doing everything it possible can to bring in even more money. One way of doing just that is to pair the film’s director, F. Gary Gray, with the one and only Jay Leno to show off the 2016 US Specialty Vehicles (USSV) Rhino GX. It’s an absolute beast. But strangely, its younger sibling, the Jeep-based Rhino XT, is the vehicle shown in the film.
Although they’re both based on production trucks, the powertrain and drivetrains are mostly stock (the XT does have a supercharger), but things like the suspension have been heavily modified, as well as completely unique bodies. And yes, both are the Rhino GX and XT are production vehicles that are manufactured in Los Angeles, and are on sale right now.
Nearly 300 examples of the Rhino GX have already been built and each one is completely street legal. The Rhino GX starts life out as a Ford F-450, but USSV takes the two-door cab and chassis and goes to work. The steel body, for example, is just one of many things added by USSV in its LA facility. How much for all of this badassness? The Rhino GX starts off at just under $250,000. Photos courtesy of USSV.
